Not quite what Webcameron was looking for?

Warning: This post was published more than 10 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

I’m not sure on this one… Is this exactly the opposite of what David Cameron wanted his Webcameron site to be used for – or is it exactly what he wanted?

It’s certainly ‘down with the kids’ – it’s not a Tory message, but is the hope that videos like this will attract young people to the site, so that when they start browsing they might come across some Conservative content – or even just reinforce the ‘Cool Cameron’ brand in their minds? Or was this exactly the sort of thing the critics feared?

I’m confusuled!
